Qualys Vulnerability Management

Qualys Vulnerability Management is a Security input connector. Connect to your Qualys Vulnerability Management API to start collecting vulnerability data. Create a Qualys service user account before connecting.

IP Allowlists

You might need to add the Monad IP range of to your Qualys Vulnerability Management allowlist, so Monad can connect to it.

Monad can currently connect to Qualys Vulnerability Management and Web Application Scanning. If you want to connect Monad to both, you must add a separate connector for each. Contact us if you are using a different Qualys tool.

Set up a Qualys service account

Monad does not currently support using Qualys SAML SSO for connectors. To connect to Monad, create a service user. If you don’t have access to do this, contact your Qualys administrator.

  1. Go to the Qualys Platform Identification page, and copy or write down your Platform name and API URL.
  2. Go to Vulnerability Management, then click Users > User, then New > User.
  3. Create a Monad service account that is a non-Manager user, and grant it API access.
  4. Select all of the Qualys modules and permissions you want to connect to Monad.
  5. Save the username and password. You’ll need them when you set up the Monad connector.

Set up a Qualys VM connector in Monad

  1. In the Monad UI, click Add connector, and choose the Qualys tool you want to connect to.
  2. Optionally, change the default name for the connector. This name serves as a label for the connector in the Monad app, and you can change it later.
  3. When prompted, enter the FQDN of your Qualys host, omitting https://.
  4. Enter the username and password for the service user.
  5. (Optional) - set your connector schedule
  6. Click Connect.

That’s it! Monad tests the connection to Qualys, and if successful, begins syncing data from Qualys into your Monad account.
